It recently launched in Thailand with an equivalent RM55k base price; now the 2014 Honda Jazz has popped up on our sister classifieds site oto.my. The listing says the B-segment hatch could launch in July, and indicates a price of RM75k – pretty much unchanged from the current car’s RM74,800.
UPDATE: A new listing on oto.my suggests a September launch, at the same indicative price of RM75k.
The drivetrain should be similar to our Honda City‘s, comprising a 120 PS/145 Nm 1.5 litre SOHC i-VTEC four-cylinder motor and a CVT. Equipment should mirror the City’s as well, so expect that seven-inch touch-screen, touch-panel auto air-con and full keyless operation to feature on the pricier variants. Oh, and who could forget those Ultra Seats?
Read our review of the Honda City for a reasonable idea of what the new Jazz would be like to drive.
